Bristol Queer Cafe presents “Confessions of a Poser”
The Bristol queercaf presents the return of Lynnee Breedlove’s queer punk rock standup show, plus a selection of other queer shenanigans on Saturday 24th October at a secret location …
Breedlove’s solo show, “Confessions of a Poser” is part of Lynnee Breedlove’s One Freak Show by Lynn Breedlove, the print form of both his solo shows that have been touring the world the last five years. The book is out on Manic D Press, September 1, 2009. This is his book tour.
Lynnee Breedlove’s all new solo show, Confessions of a Poser is a comic look at men’s bodies, the mystery of the purple dick, legacies and how to use them, family, the impossibility of manhood, and the evil drive to feminize. He’s been told it’s “Too many props for standup,” and “Too many punchlines for theater.” Lynnee pays homage to feminists, who taught him we can hang together or hang separately, and how to tie a tie, and to his Dad, who taught him how to be a man by killing things and eating them, duties Breedlove happily juggles with those of a budding Buddhist. Buckets, knives, and body parts are still integral to the show. Weirdly, his biggest fans are straight white men.
Followed by DJs playing queercore, riot girl and random trash

Lynnee Breedlove can’t perform this Saturday (24th), as he has had to go to Berlin to be with his mother, so the show has been postponed until further notice.
For those of you who’d still like your Lynnee fix, we invite you to a free screening of “Rise Above”, the documentary about Lynnee’s groundbreaking queer punk band Tribe 8. We intended to show it last month but due to postal delays it didn’t arrive in time. I can confirm we do have it and have resolved kebele’s projector issues. More info below.
for more info on the postal strikes that contributed to the delay in us receiving Rise Above, see: http://thecommune.wordpress.com/2009/10/08/what-is-the-london-postal-strike-really-about/
